Following on from last year's early preview of Tomcat 9, this presentation will provide an update on the Tomcat 9 implementation of the next versions of the JavaEE specifications that most impact Tomcat (Servlet, JSP, EL and WebSocket). There will be a particular focus on the progress of HTTP/2 support. The results of the GSoC project to add JASPIC support will also be reviewed.
The internal refactoring planned for Tomcat 9 is complete. Mark will review the reasoning behind these changes and discuss some of the lessons learned. The refactoring has resulted in some noteable changes to configuration - particularly SSL since Tomcat 9 adds SNI support to all three HTTP connector implementations. Mark will discuss these configuration changes and how they will affect migration from earlier Tomcat versions to Tomcat 9.
Finally, Mark will outline the roadmap to a stable Tomcat 9 release.
